Wines of Provence at Piedmont Epicurean Arts Center

The last meetup at the Piedmont Epicurean Arts Center (PEAC) was a big success, so we are going to do another one. The Provence region in France is well-known for their rosé wine, in fact most rosés in Virginia are modeled on the Provence style of rosé. Learning about the history of rosé in Provence will give you a better appreciation for rosé wines on general.

From the PEAC website: "Part of the Wines of France Deep Dive series. We will be taking an in depth look at the wines of the Provence region of France. This class is all about rose', which accounts for 87% of total wine production in Provence. We will review the 2600 year history that has established Provence as the gold standard in dry rose'. We will also discuss the regoin's geography, climate, current practices, and AOCs."

The best news is that the class is being taught by Melanie, the assistant winemaker at Fabbioli. No one in the Virginia winemaking community has more passion for rosé than Melanie.

The class is $55 , which includes samplings of some of the best rosé from Provence. Just like the last class, you must pre-register, and there is limited space. You can do so here: http://www.epicureancenter.com/classes/enthusiast-series/wine-appreciation-classes/5-wine-appreciation-classes/61-wines-of-provence

    Sorry to miss this one. I attended the Wines of France and Wines of Rhone. These classes are wonderful. I would like to see local winery employees take these, which would raise the winery tasting experience......

    I attended the wine and cheese paring class and the one thing I wish James had given us was a "take away" (i.e., a handout). Any chance that at this event we will be given a handout to walk away with? I was lucky to have good note takers at James' class that posted most of the information we were given at that class...just a thought.
